About SCUBA Diving on the Big Island:
Sure, there is much to explore on land during a visit to Hawaii, but some visitors just can’t resist the chance to explore what is beneath the surface of the beautiful water. SCUBA Diving is one of the best ways to see what’s down there!
This Thing to do on Hawaii does require certification for most of the dives. There are, however, introductions to SCUBA diving that do not require certification. You can also choose to become certified during your visit. Most of the companies that offer SCUBA Diving excursions also offer certification.
Note that there are different levels of certification required depending on which type of dive you choose. One popular choice is wreck diving. See wrecks like the Naked Lady - a 60-foot-long sailboat. This wreck, which can be seen at 110 feet, is one of the most well-known wrecks in the state. The Naked Lady dive is for advanced divers, but there are plenty of options for less experienced divers as well.
SCUBA Divers will also have the chance to see beautiful coral formations and a variety of marine life such as turtles, rays, a multitude of tropical fish, and sharks. Add this exciting Hawaii Activity to your itinerary, bring your underwater camera, and get ready to enjoy what is sure to be a highlight of your visit to the Big Island.
